2021 DFV Carbonic Malbec

2021 DFV Carbonic Malbec

Inspired by the quaffable wines of Beaujolais, yet a fun twist using Malbec from our Estate. This wine is definitely not shy! A pop of aromas including raspberries, blueberries, and fresh flowers. The wine is light bodied with really bright acid contrasted by chewy tannins

Wine Enthusiast rating of 91.

Vineyard Notes
Malbec sourced from our estate vineyards in the Santa Clara AVA located in the Central Coast. Clone 9 on rootstock SO4, planted originally in 1990 and grafted over to Mourvedre in 1996
Winemaker Notes
The grapes were hand harvested on September 11, 2021. Grapes were loaded whole bunch, uncrushed into a tank. The tank was then filled with CO2. Carbonic maceration lasted 12 days then the wine was pressed. Primary fermentation continued in stainless steel. After malolactic fermentation in the barrel, the wine aged for 9 months in stainless steel
Food Pairing Notes
Sweet bar-b-q, grilled asada, pork roast or grilled pork, rosemary crusted chicken and potatoes. Empanadas or an array of cheese and charcuterie. This is a great summer wine. Try it lightly chilled
